When one navigates to Manage » Configuration, the page is divided into sections which (in the "Seven" theme at least) shows up in individual boxes. These sections have headings like "People", "Content authoring", "Development", etc.
I am able to create a settings form and place this inside any of the existing sections on the configuration page by associating it with the
parent key in
hello_world.greeting_form: title: 'Salutation settings' description: 'Configure the salutation message.' route_name: hello_world.greeting_form parent: system.admin_config_development
This places a link to the settings form for the "Hello World" module in the "Development" section. This is not where I want to place it.
Instead, I want to create a new section named "Examples", place this new section along with the others on the "Configuration" page, and make this new section the parent of my link to the settings form.
Below is an image of what I want it to look like. There should be a new section, named "Examples" as the section heading, and in that section, there should be a link to the settings form with the text "Salutation settings":
